iTwin allows for easy file-sharing

by Mark R

itwin-20090915-501What you see in the picture here is the iTwin. It isn’t a thumb drive with two USB connections, but a way of transferring your files from one computer to another.

Sure, you could just set up a mainframe network, send a file as an attachment, or just put the file you want on a thumb drive and plug it into another computer. Yes, there are a lot of ways to do file transfers from one computer to the other, but iTwin makes the process a lot easier.

Here’s what you do. The iTwin comes apart into two equal parts. You stick one USB thumb into one part, then the other thumb into another computer. From there, you can drag and drop files from one computer, and it will automatically appear on the other computer.

Yes, the iTwins are connected wirelessly via the Internet, just like the bond between two twins. At least the ones that are psychic.

The creators of the iTwin hope to have this out on the market sometime early next year for a price of $99. You might think that is a lot to spend for this file-sharing device, but you should ask yourself how much you would spend to make your life easier.

I am unsure how having a device, that still works via the internet, is easier or safer than using PC Remote Access software. I like the idea behind it, but if you are going to use an iTwin, why not save the money and just use a USB drive?

$100 to do something you can do for free. Okay.
Good Luck to the makers…they will need it.

From what I saw on their webpage, you need computers to be powered up on both sides! That is not environmentally friendly.

If you want free file transfer try DropBox!
DropBox! blows this crap product away.
